The war between mobile carriers rages on this holiday season although Sprint has a unique tactic their sleeves to try and gain an edge on the competition. Their strategy is to scoop up unhappy customers of their two main rivals AT&T and Verizon by guaranteeing them a 50% decrease in their monthly bill by switching to Sprint. This promotion will go into effect starting December 5th and can be used in conjunction with the early termination fee credit that Sprint began offering earlier this year.

Eligible subscribers who take advantage of this promotion are expected to receive a 50% discount for the life their account although there is one small catch. You won't be able to get a new handset for the contract price (subsidized) and you'll be forced to lease or buy a device outright should you wish to take part in the 50% off program. If you already own an unlocked smartphone then this opportunity could save you some serious money in the long run.
